today’s word of the day: john vanderslice

this solo artist and collaborator of the seminal band has the second greatest name in rock after snakedog tigerface, according to . he is also one of rock’s most generous artists. check out to get tons of free mp3s, photos he took and zip files of recent shows. i also think his song is one of the best pop songs ever. also enjoy with spoon.

you're thinking of john darnielle. even though they have the same first name (john) they're actually two different people.

Every time Sam Biguity posts something he is bought up on trial, this blog is turning into high school.

sorry sam, but this post is patronizing. do you really think that sneakmove's readership (all 15 of us) has no idea who john vanderslice is? and even if we don't, is this the best way to introduce us to him, with an inaccurate abridged bio and some glib pop culture reference about britney spears? if you want to create a news/culture/lifestyle site that people enjoy visiting, don't talk down to your audience--these are the same people ray might like to monetize against someday.

by all means share good music (new or old) with the rest of us, but give your readers a little more credit. they deserve it.

oh. and understand that i'm not an anonymous poster who thinks pete nicely can do no right...i just think you really need to recognize when you're fucking it up for the team.

Take the war somewhere else.

thanks for the interest. i've never lived in san francisco and i don't think most people have heard of vanderslice or aware of the great stuff on his site. there are a bunch of great links in this lil post. a couple of poor jokes that people love to take literally. i can't buy any agrument that this post works as anything less than a fun reminder for people who know the guy.

believe, to say that sm has 15 readers and then suggest the problem is i am making it difficult to monetize said readers isn't up to your normal, wanky logic.

also, please come back masturhaters. and click ads.

my homework for this weekend: set up a private forum where internal gripes can be discussed and resolved, leaving the comment sections free for the world to ignore.

although i do love seeing "10 comments" -- feels like slashdot!

and no horn tootin' allowed but just in case anyone wants to know, today the site has had over 600 page loads and should end with over 300 unique readers. nothing to quit a job about, but people are peepin' it...

I'm going to stick up for Sam here.

B E L I E V E, you ain't nothing but a mark. Your accusing Sam of being condescending is like Richard Simmons calling Ricky Martin gay. I've read many a condescending post from you, and I'd even suggest the two of you engage in a condescend-off if your previous send off hadn't sent you so far off.

Don't make me come out there, amaze you with my ability to eat blue crab, and then amaze your neighbors as I force you to eat your own front lawn in the manner of the oxen. Once you're full, I will then tell you *all* about *amazing* albums you've never heard of by *underground* artists like PJ Harvey.
